Day 1,291: Two weeks after Trump swore his imaginary health care plan would be done and signed, he played more golf instead
During an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace that aired July 19, Donald Trump swore that he would have a “full and complete health care plan” to repeal and replace Obamacare, and it would be “sign[ed]…within two weeks.”
The two weeks are up.
No plan, of course.
Nothing signed, obviously.
Trump and Republicans have promised a health care plan for years and come up with nothing. The closest they got to a plan was trying and failing to repeal huge chunks of the Affordable Care Act, which was less of a plan and more of a taking a machete to a law providing health care to millions.
With an unknown health care bill nowhere to be seen, with a pandemic that has killed over 155,000 Americans raging across the country, with economic turmoil causing strife from coast-to-coast, Trump played golf for the second time this weekend and the eighth weekend in a row.
Trump has now visited one of his golf courses on exactly 22% of his days in office and visited one of his properties on over 29% of his days in office.
